A Corpsman’s Legacy

by Stephanie Caisse

Through The Daughter He Never Knew, Corpsman Gary Young Continues To Heal Veterans And Their Families:

Adopted as a baby, Stephanie began a search for her biological parents without a clue as to where this journey would lead. Early on she discovered her birth father, Gary Norman Young, was killed in the Vietnam War before she was even born. Locating veterans from her father’s world revealed his duties as a Navy Corpsman assigned to the Marine Corps as a helicopter crewmember.

As the story unravels, the mystery of her father’s courage, bravery and finally his death, brings Stephanie in contact with thousands of Marines and their families, including those who died in the helicopter crash with her father. Her journey, itself, becomes a legacy that offers hope and healing to those touched by the tragedies of war while honoring the remarkable relationship that exists between the Marines and their Navy Corpsmen.

Finally, with the help of veterans, the Marine Corps Commandant and a United State Senator, Stephanie obtains the medals and honors her father earned for his sacrifice and service – her tribute to the father she never knew.

Comic Tragedies (Quad Books Book 5)

by Dino E. Gualano

We benefit from laughter in a variety of ways, but the people that make us laugh seem to exchange their happiness for the sacrifice of comedy. When thinking about Robin Williams, Joan Rivers, Chris Farley, and John Belushi, their sacrifice was meant for us to forget about the world by using laughter.

Robins Williams said, “Comedy is acting out optimism.”

It’s strange that the benefit of comedians such as Williams is to produce hopefulness, brightness, and confidence in our souls. It makes you wonder if on the outside, comedians are just “acting,” while on in the inside a piece of them dies each time that laughter is shared.

What you will discover with Robin Williams, Joan Rivers, Chris Farley, and John Belushi is that they kept secrets hidden from our worldâ?¦

A darkness that prevailed over comedy and became a tragedyâ?¦

Despite Everything – The Oscar Bronner Story

by JM Stim

Born in Haifa in 1943 to a family of Jewish refugees from Austria, after World War II Oscar Bronner grew up among the ruins of war-torn Vienna. While his father embarked on a career that would see him become one of the greatest entertainment icons of Central Europe, his son became one of its most influential media entrepreneurs.

After having founded Austria’s first independent news and business magazines (“profil” and “trend”) in the late Sixties, only to be forced to sell them to the powers-that-be in 1974, he came to New York City to start a new life as an artist.

After spending more than a decade leading the bohemian life of a sculptor and a painter in SoHo and East Hampton, he returned to Vienna in the Mid-Eighties to found a newspaper that set out to become the Austrian equivalent of the “New York Times”. The odds were against him yet again, but this time he managed to overcome all obstacles for good, despite everything.

how I got David Ruffin to sing my song: An African American Success Story

by Nommo Userkaf

This is the story of how I got David Ruffin to include my song ‘I Get Excited’ on his solo ‘So Soon We Change’ album released on Warner Bros. Records in 1979.

The name David Ruffin holds a special place in the history of Black or African American music, and American music. As the lead singer of the Motown group ‘The Temptations’ David sang lead on ‘My Girl’ which was the very first number one hit that the group had. Some of his other hits include:

  • I Wish it Would Rain
  • Ain’t Too Proud to Beg
  • Beauty’s Only Skin Deep
  • You’re My Everything
  • It’s Growing
  • Since I Lost My Baby

My story centers on the time after David left The Temptations and began a solo career.

Other personalities in the story include:

  • Tony Green, Producer and Bass Player for Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Warren G and The Dramatics
  • Duane Huff, Drummer for Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, George Clinton and Aretha Franklin
  • Don Davis, Record Producer and founder of First Independence Bank, largest African American owned bank in Michigan

The story takes you from the beginning of my career as a Songwriter and Lyricist, through my high school friendship with Tony Green as he was starting his illustrious career as a Professional Bassist. I then take you through the bullet-like speed from the time my song was discovered to being recorded at United Sound Systems in Detroit, Michigan which was only 3 days!

You will read about the great talents that I had the opportunity to record with including:

  • Rudy Robinson
  • Dennis Coffey
  • Jerry Jones

Finally, we will head to the 20 Grand Ballroom where David sang my song at the release party when it was released as the second single from his ‘So Soon We Change’ album after the hit ‘Break My Heart’.

Queen Elizabeth II: The Life and Legacy of Britain’s Second Longest Reigning Monarch

by Charles River Editors

*Includes pictures

*Includes quotes by the Queen about her life and reign

*Includes online resources and a bibliography for further reading

*Includes a table of contents

“When I was twenty-one I pledged my life to the service of our people and I asked for God’s help to make good that vow. Although that vow was made in my salad days, when I was green in judgement, I do not regret nor retract one word of it.” – Elizabeth II

Until the implementation of new legislation on March 26, 2015, men were given preference to women in the British royal line. This system of male primogeniture meant that women seldom inherited the throne, and even when they did, they were often dominated by male councillors. Those women who married British kings gained the title of Queen, but they were queen consorts, holding the title with no power. This makes Elizabeth II one of a select few queens regnant – queens ruling in their own right – and one of even fewer to set her own course in the history of her family and its throne.

This is ironic given that history and Elizabeth’s relation to preceding monarchs made it highly unlikely that she would ever even inherit the throne. It was only the abdication of her uncle, in circumstances that shocked the world, that put the young Princess Elizabeth’s father on the throne and made her the heir. In less tumultuous times, hers would not have been the head that wore the crown.

Nonetheless, Queen Elizabeth II has become so much a part of British society and culture that her presence is taken almost for granted, setting the standard people now expect of a British monarch. The longest lived and second longest reigning monarch in British history, Elizabeth II has overseen her country during a time of incredible turmoil and ever-accelerating change, providing a stable figure at the heart of a nation going through seemingly endless upheavals. Her impact in this regard extends beyond the United Kingdom and all the way to those countries of the Commonwealth over which she is still monarch.

In too many ways to count, hers has been an extraordinary reign, but even as she has been able to portray herself as a figure of tradition, she has been a modern queen in many respects, so even as she reaches old age and her subjects are forced to consider what life will be like without her, she has set the Royal Family on a path to modernity.

Queen Elizabeth II: The Life and Legacy of Britain’s Second Longest Reigning Monarch traces the life of Elizabeth II and the history of her reign. Along with pictures of important people, places, and events, you will learn about Queen Elizabeth II like never before, in no time at all.

Shame & Grandiosity: One Man’s Journey through the Velvet Rage

by Drew VanDyche

Shame & Grandiosity is a short testimony of my life as a non-straight man as seen through the lens of Alan Down’s revelatory work “The Velvet Rage: Overcoming the Pain of Growing Up Gay in a Straight Man’s World.” It is part of the oral history I began when I enrolled in a Masters program at the Pacific School of Religion in 2010. It was also my final presentation in my preaching class. And boy did those kids have no idea what hit them.
